Tafsir

on the day when the earth and the mountains will quake and the mountains will be like heaps of shifting sand (maheel derives from haala, yaheelu; it is actually mahyool, but the damma sound is considered too heavy for the yaa' and is therefore transposed onto the haa', while the waaw, the second of two unvocalised consonants, is omitted on account of it being extra, and the damma is replaced by a kasra because of its [phonetic] affinity the [letter] yaa').
